“I felt like my game was in a good spot going into this week and I knew this course fit me really well, so I was — I was coming in with some high expectations, but obviously for it to end like this and win by four shots, it’s been a cool week. Couldn’t ask for it to go any different.”

The Norwegian started the day with a two-shot lead and produced six birdies and two bogeys to win his third PGA Tour title. He becomes the first player to successfully defend his title since the inaugural event in 2007.

“I woke up really early this morning and I was pretty nervous and excited to get going . To be able to kind of sleep on the lead and go out in kind of the conditions early on today, because it was blowing pretty hard on the front nine. Frankly, I did not play well at all the front nine, but I was able to hang in there and make a lot of good putts. I was really happy to be able to just kind of pull off the round that I did today without having my best stuff.”

Mexico’s Carlos Ortiz finished second at 19-under after a final round 66.

“I’m really proud. It was a tough day. I couldn’t really find anything on the front nine and I just kept pushing. The people, having them out here, all my friends, I just found a way to get something going. And it’s funny how golf wor ks, but once you hit that first shot that you see and how you want it, just clicks and I just find that confidence that I needed to finish strong.”

Justin Thomas fired a 69 to finish third one shot further followed by fellow American Scottie Scheffler (66) in fourth place at 17-under.

“I made a lot of really nice putts today,” said Thomas. “I hit some good putts that I felt like could have gone in that just didn’t. I just didn’t drive it well, didn’t get off to a good enough start to really put any pressure on Viktor. It was a little windier, a little harder today, but I still wasn’t swinging it very good and I felt like I really got away with how I felt over the ball the last couple days better than I would have thought and I think it just kind of caught up to me today.”

36-hole leader Matthew Wolff of the USA fired a bogey-free 65 to finish tied for fifth place at 16-under alongside Chilean Joaquin Niemann (66).

“I knew that I felt really good with every part of my game and I knew that if I came out today, especially with it being a little windy, and put a really solid round together, then I could shoot up the leaderboard and that’s what I did,” said Wolff.
